University of Massachusetts Amherst again freezes fees, tuition for in-state undergraduates

The school’s board of trustees unanimously approved the freeze on Wednesday, crediting an increase in state support for the university.

Officials said it was the first time in UMass history that tuition and fees have not gone up for two consecutive academic years.

The university noted in a statement that the freeze is in contrast to increases of more than 5 percent at comparable schools, including the University of Connecticut.

Under the freeze, in-state undergraduate students at the university’s flagship campus in Amherst would pay $13,258 in the academic year beginning in September. The total cost including room and board would be $24,215.
